100% waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX liner is engineered to keep your feet dry, comfortable and never sweaty, even in extreme conditions. The microporous structure of the GORE-TEX makes the boot completely waterproof. Each microscopic pore is 20,000 times smaller than a drop of water, which means no external moisture or water can penetrate the membrane. The pores are also 700 times bigger than a water vapor molecule, so perspiration can easily evaporate through and you can stay dry from the inside out.
Terra Force technology from Danner became a revolutionary force in the footwear industry, providing exceptional boot support and stability without the traditional weight. The four components in the exclusive TERRA FORCE system combine to form an extremely rigid, stable platform that's also comfortable and supportive. It's the perfect balance of boot strength without the weight.
For years, many outdoor enthusiasts have selected Thinsulate Insulation because of its performance characteristics. Extremely thin and very lightweight, Thinsulate insulation maintains most of its insulating characteristics when wet. The insulation is made up of thousands of tiny microfibers that trap miniscule pockets of insulating air space, providing cold weather protection.
